Black Forest Double Chocolate Brownie Cake

This recipe takes my Double chocolate raspberry brownie recipe up a level.

It consists of two raspberry brownie layers sandwiched around a dark cherry buttercream layer.

As with the original recipe, rather than white chocolate chunks you can also use a knife to turn a Milkybar bar into flakes.

Because the presentation is that of a cake, you don't necessarily need to use square tins for this, the only requirement is that both tins be the same size shape (if you've only got one tin, you can make one layer at a time, but it'll take longer).

Can be served on it's own, or with cream
